'Tis the Season for a Puckett's Christmas Party

This is only half of the room!

I'm running a wee bit behind this week, and I'm going to say that it's definitely because of our company Christmas party on Monday night. We had just shy of 300 adults plus about 70 children in our Event Space in Columbia, TN. I would be lying if I said it wasn't overwhelming in the best way possible to see in one place how many lives and families we are intertwined with. Maybe humbling is a better word. These amazing people are the lifeblood of our family business and we depend on them every single day. I couldn't ask for a better extended family and I am so incredibly proud to know each and every one of them.

We handed out some gifts to the adorable children. I have to say, Puckett's employees sure make some darn cute kids.

Besides fellowship, we recognized a few "Puckett's Superstars" with awards.
